In a ravaged post-apocalyptic Earth of a distant future, an animated rag doll struggles to survive against the perils and the creatures of a monstrous world. To be more specific, the relentless Cat Beast, a towering and murderous automaton, is decimating 9's clan, and pretty soon, there will be no one left. The robot is after their proud souls and it is unstoppable. Is this the end of 9's people? —Nick Riganas

For a University project, '9 (2005)' is incredibly impressive. It's an atmospheric silent film with an ominous feel and an enigmatic story. It's simple but effective, a stripped-back version of the feature film it would later become. There's a nice mix of action and mystery, which keeps the piece compelling throughout. Its design is effective, its set-pieces are exciting and its narrative is satisfying. It's a good effort, even if it is a little rough around the edges. 7/10
